So, it's amazing that Steven Pienaar is the club's first international ambassador. This underlines the former Bafana Bafana captain's legendary status at Everton.
The only question some local SA fans are asking is why Pienaar is calling Everton home? To be fair to the midfielder, he isn't disrespecting South Africa, because the town of Liverpool is also his home after spending many special years at Everton.

Steven Pienaar was not only a proper little operator he captained a country as big as South Africa in world cups, there's nothing negative about the appointment, nothing.— Shoey Mc (@ShoeyEFC1234) April 3, 2018
Getting Steven Pienaar back is just so @Everton they're always trying to be nice like this instead of being ruthless. He left us for more money fuck him. By being all nicey nicey is the reason why we're mediocre at present. Yeah Rooney I'm looking at you.— Psilocybin (@Fugazi140) April 3, 2018
